By all odds, in the history of technology, the year of 2014 will be known as the 'year of smartwatches.' This can be said, as mostly all the tech titans of the industry unveiled their smartwatch flagships lately and began the revolution in the category. Samsung took the lids off its Gear range, Moto360 also got unveiled, LG G Watch was also introduced and now it looks like HTC is prepping one to amaze its fan.
This is not the first time we are hearing speculations about the HTC's upcoming smartwatch. Earlier this month, HTC's alleged smartwatch powered by Google's Android Wear platform was leaked online by serial leakster @evleaks. That was an image render which got most of the HTC fans pretty excited. However, this time around, as it appears, the Taiwan-based premium smartphone maker has inadvertently showed its upcoming smartwatch in an official video in YouTube.
Obviously, the video doesn't have to do anything about the smartwatch but apparently, the smartwatch has been seen twice in the same video, which is no accident for big firms like HTC. And it is logical enough for many tech-news hunters to understand why HTC has showed footages related to wearable device in the official video twice.
Anyways, leaving the reasons unanswered (which most of you have figured out), industry experts believe that the smartwatch could come powered by Android Wear, going by a couple of frames in the video. This brings us to an inference that HTC might launch its latest wearable offering very soon, or perhaps if the rumors are to be taken seriously this fall itself.
Another fact is the HTC smartwatch would come inspired by the looks of Samsung and LG's Android Wear powered devices the Gear Live and G Watch respectively, which is squarish in shape. As per the video leak, HTC has evidently chosen the square route here. Also, to be precise, the HTC smartwatch in the video features a square display which shows the time in white on a black background.
So far it's only Motorola, who has dared to take a circular display module for its Moto 360 smartwatch.
However, if it was a serious attempt to get fans go crazy, HTC has become pretty successful by instilling enough amount of curiosity among most of the fans and tech savvy wearable device lovers.
The latest video leak of the HTC's so-called upcoming smartwatch has left enough room for fans to unburden themselves by guessing when is the device coming. So, if you have some sort of hunch that could possibly lead us to any conclusion, do drop us your comment below and stay tuned!
